Lovely Sunday evening

Once again a fabulous meal. Beautiful location overlooking the harbour. John Moynihan and his staff were outstanding. We will be back soon :)

We had dinner here on our recent stay in Cobh. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly. The outside seating offers excellent views of the harbour. My husband had the scallops and he thoroughly enjoyed them. Reasonably priced.

We just wanted a "snack lunch" but this was real gourmet food. Perfectly cooked and presented Scallops and delicious tempura prawns. Not expensive and all in a friendly environment. Mine host is to be congratulated for his well run establishment. This was a one off visit whilst on a cruise. Well worth a try.

The location is just fabulous..a sea front over looking cork harbour..with seating outside. We had the scallops which were cooked to perfection and had the hake with a 5 choice of potatoes , even better again the staff were out on their own,service was top class! A must visit in cobh ! I surely will be returning

This food is excellent, service a little slow but the food makes up for that. Not really that badly priced for the area. Really worth a visit

Could not fault the welcome we received here at the Quays bar . When they found out we were Italian they put an Italian waitress on our table for duration of our stay, top class

As a regular visitor to Cobh this summer, this has become a firm favorite lunch location, friendly staff, fantastic food, and often a musician playing happy tunes that will get the stiffest foot a tapping.
